The Industry Executive Committee members participate in a variety of activities that enhance the government-industry working relationship on the local level. These activities include planning and administrative support to Commanders at Wright-Patterson AFB (WPAFB) for the multiple industry and defense related briefings and regular informal luncheons where key USAF personnel address topics of current interest.
HQ AFMC, AFLCMC, AFRL, NASIC, and AFSAC Directorate facilitate a number of annual meetings on WPAFB where senior industry executives join with their Air Force counterparts to discuss issues of common interest. The Industry Executive Committee works closely with Air Force leadership to identify forum topics and potential speakers and panel members, and provides administrative support to the forum proceedings.

Life Cycle Industry Days (LCID)
LCID 2017 was another success with over 500 attendees from government and industry(both large and small) from across the country. The goals for this year's Life Cycle Industry Days were to continue existing and forge new relationships between government and industry senior leaders and their multifunctional teams; provide a forumto discuss near and long-term requirements; and provide an opportunity for large and small business to discuss possible partnerships. The Industry/ Government panels, networking sessions and 1-on-1 meetings provided and excellent venue for these goals to be achieved. NDIA played a role in achieving these goals by participatin in Industry/Government pre-planning sessions and providing an Industry based on prioritized topic list; NDIA also facilitated identifying Industry panel members and speakers for LCID 2017. We are looking forward to playing a role in future LCID successes.
